Complete rookie question - streaming netflix on an old TV
My wife has had a mail-order netflix account for a long time and now is really wanting to do the streaming thing to the TV. The thing is I know almost nothing about what is needed, and never cared about that stuff so my first question is - will it work if I get the hardware for it and try to run it with our rather old TV.
We had a digital TV till it died last fall, and we got a free replacement from her sister - they had an old one in the garage. 27 inch GE, the picture is ok, but I havent been able to figure out how to get our DVD player to work with it. It works with a VCR, but not our DVD. I actually suspect it's so old it doesnt work with DVD's and may well not work with streaming netflix
We have a wireless home network so I hope streaming can go through that. I hate to think of running a cat 5 cable to the TV.
See how rookie my questions are?
I see stuff online about Roku - is that the way to go?
